Android Oreo (Go Edition) is the latest new darling of Google that aims to bring Android to dirt-cheap smartphones. We saw our first wave of Go Edition phones at MWC 2018 with the Alcatel 1X and Nokia 1. But it seems the big downpour of such Android Go devices has just started. Huawei is the latest new phone maker to be reportedly prepping a Y5 Lite (2018) with Android Go.
Gizchina News of the week
According to current info, the Huawei Y5 Lite (2018) should be powered by a MediaTek MT6737 system-on-chip and 854 x 480 pixels resolution. Of course, the specs are nothing to write home about but Huawei jumping on the Android Go bandwagon is. The Huawei Y5 Lite should come loaded with the lite Go apps like Search, YouTube, and Gmail.
If you’re still not unaware of Google’s Android Go OS, it is a lightweight Android edition meant to work on very low specs. The OS should work fine even on smartphones with as low as 1GB of RAM.
As for the Huawei Y5 Lite, it has also appeared as model number CAG-L03/CAG-L23 at the FCC. This model number matches with the same model number attributed to Y5 Lite found in Huawei firmware.
Still, neither the release date or price of the smartphone is known but judging from the specs, we doubt that it would cost more than $100.
